Introduction
Brazilian Botanist, a member of the Flora do Brasil 2020 project. My research is focused on Hypericum (Hypericaceae, Malpighiales) systematics. I am mostly interested in plant taxonomy, nomenclature, phylogeny, evolution, and conservation. In parallel, I have been collaborating in ecological studies in the South Brazilian grasslands (Campos Sulinos). Specifically, I have field experience in floristics and phytosociology of the Pampa and Atlantic Forest grasslands.

Article
Red Lists are legal instruments that guide decisions within the context of conservation. Such lists can indicate the most appropriate conservation actions, leading to choices of priority areas for conservation, or create alternatives to ensure the preservation of threatened species. However, if Red Lists are effective tools in the conservation of t...
Article
Integrative approaches have been very useful to identify diagnostic morphological characters in species delimitation and to understand how abiotic factors influence the geographical distribution of taxa and whether these factors may be driving to specific changes in phenotypic variation patterns. Here we use a South American Hypericum species to di...

Aims We offer a first classification of South Brazilian grasslands (Campos Sulinos) based on quantitative vegetation data and describing grassland types in terms of dominant and indicator species. Location South Brazilian grasslands (Paraná, Santa Catarina, Rio Grande do Sul states). Methods We described vegetation plots in 167 sampling units thr...
Article
An updated taxonomic and nomenclatural framework is essential to develop most biological research. To stabilize the application of Hypericum names and avoid future problems, we critically reviewed the protologues, the main Floras in which the studied names are listed, and the types of 84 names described for non‐Andean South America (Argentina, Braz...
Article
Schinus pampeana is a new species from Brazilian Pampa. The new species was tentatively included in Schinus sect. Terebinthifolia, and is morphologically most similar to Schinus lentiscifolia and S. weinmanniifolia. We present here a detailed morphological description, a geographical distribution map, IUCN conservation status assessment, ecological...

The shortage of reliable primary taxonomic data limits the description of biological taxa and the understanding of biodiver-sity patterns and processes, complicating biogeographical, ecological, and evolutionary studies. This deficit creates a significant taxo-nomic impediment to biodiversity research and conservation planning. The taxonomic impedi...

The South Brazilian grasslands (Campos Sulinos) form the dominant vegetation in southern Brazil. They are species-rich ecosystems that occur under distinct geomorphological and climatic conditions but spatial variation of plant species diversity remains understudied. Here, we present a detailed description of plant communities across the region. Ou...
Article
Fire is among the major forces shaping patterns in nature. Although sometimes it is only acknowledged for its destructive power, it was one of the evolutionary drivers that produced present-day species and biome distributions, being inextricably linked to fire-prone ecosystems such as grasslands. Knowing how fire influences grassland biodiversity i...

Viviania linostigma is restricted to the Brazilian territory, considered a threatened and endemic species of a small region in the Araucaria Forest. This species has been recorded only in southeast Santa Catarina State, and the extreme northeast of Rio Grande do Sul State, in Brazil. Here, we report four new records of V. linostigma for Rio Grande...

The urge to organise the world around us is an essential part of human nature. Naming and categorising enable us to store and access information ef ciently. The need to name and categorise extends to the natural world and, in particular, to living organisms. The science underpinning this area of knowledge is called Taxonomy, and is as old as humani...
Article
Full-text available
The biodiversity loss resulting from rising levels of human impacts on ecosystems has been extensively discussed over the last years. The expansion of urban areas promotes drastic ecological changes, especially through fragmentation of natural areas. Natural grassland remnants surrounded by an urban matrix are more likely to undergo disturbance eve...

The Global Strategy for Plant Conservation (GSPC) was established by the Conference of Parties in 2002 to decrease the loss of plant diversity, reduce poverty and contribute to sustainable development. To achieve this overarching goal, the GSPC has established a series of targets, one of which is to ensure that plant diversity is well understood, s...

Article
Priority concerning the publication of St. Hilaire’s name Hypericum cordiforme over H. cordatum is confirmed since its effective publication in Flora Brasiliae Meridionalis (1828) predates the publication of Vellozo’s name Receveura cordata, the basionym of H. cordatum, in Florae fluminensis (1829). We also provide a second-step lectotypification f...
Article
Species richness remains one of the most valuable type of information for biodiversity conservation. Here, we report a plant richness record in the Brazilian Pampa. We found 56 vascular plant species in a single plot of 1 × 1 m in a privately owned grazed grassland in a region with shallow soils. This number is considerably higher than common speci...

O Parque Natural Municipal Saint’Hilaire é uma Unidade de Conservação localizada em uma das maiores regiões metropolitanas do Brasil, Porto Alegre, no estado do Rio Grande do Sul. A região é reconhecida como uma área de transição entre os dois principais Biomas do Sul do Brasil, Pampa e Mata Atlântica. A região metropolitana abriga uma população ap...

Resumo O presente estudo florístico fornece chaves de identificação, descrições morfológicas, ilustrações e comentários para as espécies de Hypericaceae registradas no estado do Espírito Santo, Brasil. Foram encontradas uma espécie de Hypericum: H. brasiliense, comumente distribuída em áreas abertas das regiões Sudeste e Sul do Brasil, e seis espéc...

Nas cangas da Serra dos Carajás ocorrem cinco espécies de Vismia, as quais podem ser reconhecidas pela morfologia foliar em combinação com a presença ou ausência de glândulas nas pétalas e a disposição das sépalas no fruto maduro. Vismia bemerguii, V. cayennensis, V. gracilis, V. cf. schultesii e V. tenuinervia ocorrem, geralmente, na transição ent...
Article
Hypericum bordignonii (Hypericaceae) is a new species from Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. This species belongs to Hypericum section Trigynobrathys, and is morphologically most similar to H. legrandii. The new species can be distinguished from all other species of the genus by having anthers with prolonged connectives, a characteristic that has never be...

The two endemic, endangered species, Bacch­ aris hypericifolia (Asteraceae) and Hypericum salvadorense (Hypericaceae), were known only for the Rio Grande do Sul state, in Brazil. In this paper we report two new occurrences of these species in Santa Catarina, expanding their geographic distribution to the north. Baccharis hypericyfolia and H. salvad...
Article
In this article we describe and illustrate Hypericum austrobrasiliense, a new species endemic to the grasslands of the Brazilian Atlantic Forest biome and restricted to Southern Brazil. This distinctive species is classified as Endangered based on IUCN Red List criteria.
